Manchester City, Western Sydney Wanderers and Geelong Cats are my favourites.

Politics mate. Some people don’t want This team recognised at all

The 80-year-old who has just become a Matilda

Having some challenges with FA. They don’t want to recognise this team as a national team but want to recognise them as being the first team that represented Australia at a major tournament. Hahhaa make of that what you will. Next step is try and get their games from 1975 counted as A internationals

The 80-year-old who has just become a Matilda

Good to see a few players now recognised from the past

Next step is to get their games counted as A internationals. All other countries count the games played at the 1975 tournament as A internationals but Australia still hasn’t and still won’t at this stage.

They need to be counted in my view

I guess when you aren’t remunerating someone for what you think they are worth, it can be seen as pushing them out and letting them make the call

Seventh heaven: Who will coach the Wanderers' women next?

She wasn’t discarded. She left. Partly due to remuneration and partly due to playing budgets. She didn’t tell me this, heard from people closely linked. I believe them because this has been a. Common issue for Wanderers

Seventh heaven: Who will coach the Wanderers' women next?

Goood player. As a coach, she created a good environment but was inexperienced.

She has never coached a Womens team at NPLW level. She was a second assistant to Heffernan and other coaches before her.

So experience wasn’t there. Same would be said of a male coach. Many go into Womens without experience and many leave after a short time.

Players at this level want a coach with experience. They have their own goals and aspirations. Like making Matildas and so on. The players don’t care about political statements.

Personally would like to have seen Cath get another chance and by all accounts she was the one who left. The club didn’t want to pay up. A common issue with other coaches at Wanderers.

Thanks mate. I’ll be writing till the 2023 World Cup then I’m done hahah given enough to this

Seventh heaven: Who will coach the Wanderers' women next?

We need a coach who can attract quality. Cannuli did a good job but is relatively inexperienced. Hopefully Sermanni finds a gem

And paying off past coaches

Great point mate. The Wanderers only averaged 12K in our first season and we took the league by storm. So hard to expect macarthur or WU to average huge crowds. Unfair.

'They tried and failed': Can Macarthur survive?

Personally I dont think any club should be judged this season. The Bulls will get there in time. It isnt going to be an overnight success.

Once they have a few years under their belt and with more community engagement, they will get more fans. We shouldnt expect 15-20K for the Bulls, 8-10K is a decent crowd.

The Bullls have the added excitement of two more sydney derbies. This is great for the A-League.

We need more patience with them.

I’d be guessing with Fowler it’s a sports science issue. Her club can’t dictate game time as it’s a designated FIFA window. Unless there is a rule about players under a certain age?

'Plenty of options' as Kerr Plan B, intrigue over Fowler as Matildas beat NZ

I think the APL are on record and saying there will be expansion sooner rather than later

Yep I think everyone would agree with that. No one should get there because of their ethnic background. The point Elissia was making is how good it would be to have more players of that background as it would attract more fans

Interesting choice

FA struggling to find Olyroos coach after Rudan and Zdrilic turn down approaches

Just some additional info, the late Sue Taylor from the 1975 Australian XI was born in England and had English parents but I think her family moved to South Africa or Zimbabwe for work, not sure if she identified herself as African so didn’t mention her here.

Yes they played well albeit against a weaker opponent. Australia had a good game plan and executed it well.

Imagine how good the result would have been if our first choice players were available.

Well done to the ladies that stepped in and hopefully it shows we have a bit more depth.

The true test will be against the likes of USA, Japan and England and so on at the World Cup in August

He has been a coach here and abroad so a Good choice. Someone like Muscat be good but he is prob happy in the J-League

FA struggling to find Olyroos coach after Rudan and Zdrilic turn down approaches

It has to be someone who is proven in youth development and understands international football. Someone that knows what it takes to compete against top Asian teams.

Rudan is not an ex Socceroo. We want the right person 🙂

Canberra is what everyone wants. Not sure of the Corporate support there?

It will be interesting how it works with the NPL. I am guessing some clubs will argue the $250K fee is like a licencing fee
